Aix en Provence

I’m on a work trip in Southern France for about a week. It’s pretty hot summer here. The evenings are very relaxing in this town.

On this sunny day, we went to a garden wedding. It was held in the morning and finished by noon. Nice and light. Nice food as well.

Weather in Thailand is too hot. It’s hard to be productive in warm weather.

Tuesday

A relatively good day. It’s always nice to have creative ideas being put to use. Life is about enjoying the present moment. Enjoy it while you can.

2-1 = 1; but 2*100=200 while 1*100=100.

Had a farewell dinner for Air. Wishing her well for her study in Illinois. Long time away from family is not easy, but it can be a character-building experience. Hope it will be a wonderful journey for her.

Learning styles

leave a comment »

People learn things differently. It’s best to match how you learn and your learning style.

My learning styles:

  • Active/Reflective: +3 Ref
  • Sensing/Intuitive: +7 Sen
  • Visual/Verbal: +9 Vis
  • Sequential/Global: +3 Glo

Slightly reflective, highly sensing, strongly visual, and somewhat global learner.
